, waiting for something to happen in washington, and i will start with you congresswoman captor. what do you think is holding up the deal here? >> in the house it was the fact that speaker boehner's plan b went down. it didn't have a vote in the house. he went to the senate. jim and i are here, we are ready, we are not coming in to work at 11 like senator mcconnell just said we will be here earlier than that in the house. we are ready to receive whatever the senate is going to send to us. we thought something might come foe tonight but it didn't. i am optimistic we can reach agreement and reach across the aisle and get something passed for the american people not because of political party but because it's the right thing to do. >> the american people have an 18 percent approval rating of congress, is it any surprise here we are a little more than 24-hours before we go over this cliff p and this deal can't get done. i mean, congressman langford, let me go to you. what is the hold up here. you guys have agreed apparently in the house. >> we have actually. we have see questionsstration in may

, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner". good morning to you. so many questions remain. first off why did they make this move now? >> because time was running out and the administration, i think, hoped that opposition among republicans in the senate to rice would diminish but it didn't. the thing that really killed it, they understood, john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte opposed her. the thing that killed it when she met susan collins who introduced her at her confirmation hearing and been a rise supporter and said there were serious questions about the nomination. at that point the handwriting was on the wall. bill: she is considered a moderate, if you have a good chance of getting through that would be the sign you have a chance but what graham just said, she was the most politically compliant person they could find, that's loaded. >> well i mean this goes back to what she said in the aftermath of those benghazi attacks when she said it wasn't a terrorist act. it was the result of spontaneous protests against that islamic video. we know that susan rice wa
